Another killer installment in the Cormoran Strike series.
I love returning to these characters, and this novel really digs into the relationship (sometimes lackthereof) between Strike and Robin. Her marital struggles, and his inability to commit frames their will-they-or-won't-they relationship throughout this novel.
I'm so into it.
Rowling's characters, no matter what the novel, are so viscerally real and flawed; they leap off the pages, and feel like they're simply people you know ... who also work as detectives.
This novel did drag at times, but overall I enjoyed it thoroughly. I feel v. connected to Robin's character - her marital struggles, her want for a life with Strike - whatever that means - and her love of detection.
I have high hopes for the next installment in this series. It feels like these two characters are at a tipping point - and I can't wait to see what will go down.
